I hear that. I used to spend a lot of time up there myself. I really hate how they close stuff off in the winter now too. Many good times were spent with my friends and me in four wheel drives on trails around Greene County.

Thanks for posting this, it was very interesting. I'd love to see photos of the area from the late 60's-early 70's period, when it was open. I'd also like to read the story of this, and know who was the developer. The sign(and small a-frame) was at the intersection of the road with Asheville Hwy until a few years ago.

I know that the road(or lack thereof) is blamed for the failures, but I'd suspect that a lack of snow killed the whole idea of a ski resort.

Seems like we used to get more snow in those days. They could have used a snow machine like many resorts do. Funny how the place flopped yet intrigues so many of us from all walks of life all these years later!:)

The link posted was a good one & I loved the pics! Thanks!!!

you guys are very welcome and i hope to dig up more i understand that it will be hard to find much history on a fly-by-night business venture however i think there may be more to it than meets the eye i wish that i was alive then to see the resort in all its glory my first time on the mountain all that was left was a foundation from the round house which was since destroyed i plan to go up on the mountain in a couple weeks in search of any other remnants of the resort probably will come up empty handed but ya never know also i noticed when driving up the road there is a big fancy gate on the left any ideas? house etc.?

The spiral metal staircase out if the main lodge is in the late jack McCoy house in tusculum between Russell acres and the fire hall.

I wish everyone would forget "Viking" mountain. It does not exist. The real and official name is "Camp Creek Bald" and I wish I would never hear the Viking named used ever again. Viking was some fictitious commercial name that some guy trying to build a ski resort hung on this beautiful mountain. I live below Camp Creek Bald and I am proud of it.
